Adam Yauch’s Will: No Advertising for Beasties Songs
Don’t expect to hear MCA rapping in a commercial anytime soon.
The late Beastie Boys musician’s will prohibits the use of his music and “artistic property” in advertisements, according to Rolling Stone.
“Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in no event may my image or name or any music or any artistic property created by me be used for advertising purposes,” the will reportedly reads.
The will, filled on Tuesday, leaves his $6.4 million estate to his wife, Dechen, and daughter, Tenzin Losel. His wife was named the executor of his estate, which places future decisions for his contributions to the Beastie Boys in her hands.
MCA, born Adam Yauch, died earlier this year after a battle with cancer. The rapper and activist was 47.
